The K5600 Black Jack 400 is the most compact and lightweight of its kind. It is the ideal interior key light, optically the Black Jack is amazingly covers angles from 5° to 160° with sharp shadows. It can be used without any lens to light wide spaces (160°) or with a selection of 3 lenses: a Spot Fresnel Lens (5° to 100°), a Flood Fresnel Lens (50° to 140°) and a frosted Fresnel lens for a little softness.
The Black Jack features 4 holes on the front door to receive poles of light banks avoiding the extra speedring.
To maximise the benefit of such a wide source, K5600 has developed an articulated barndoor. Each leaf can be extended forward to obtain a sharper cut and perfect square or rectangular shapes.
The Black Jack features an original focussing mechanism: The Black Jack consists of two housings – the outer housing includes the yoke and the removable lenses. The inner housing carries the bulb, the mirror and the striker. It slides in the outer housing to create a wide beam while reducing the overall depth of the unit and slides out to focus into the spot mode.
Bulb replacement can be done by opening the back door, giving full access to the lamp. This back door can be totally removed and replaced by a “tungsten back” turning the Black Jack into a real 3200K unit in a few seconds.
